Any of your brothers ever tried one of these smokes. I was working in an area today about 2 hours from home and drove past this little B&M..so I stopped in for a few minutes..looked around and picked a nub habano and this Gurkha Assassin. Dont know much about it but it looked interesting enough for me to pick up..any thoughts?

    You just stumbled onto a great cigar, bro. Nub Habano's my fav nub. But Gurkha Assassin? Drool. I got a great mix of rich spice, cinnamon, and dark chocolate. I'm going to have to revisit it since it's been a long time. Thanks to Stephen for giving me another. Might have to make it a staple in my humi along with the Man O' Wars and the Gurkha Centurian.

    Yeah, I thought the Assassin was pretty d*mned good, too. Mighta been better in a toro vitola, though. At least it would have lasted a little longer.

  • Spice, cinnamon, some cocoa, it's really dry and woody too. Great smoke, personally I really like the churchill.

    Love the NUB Habano too...haven't tried the Assassin but heard it's one of their better ones.

    I've had 2 of them and didn't like them. But everyone seems to like them.
